Description Josh Berkus 2016-01-25 12:43:48 EST
Description of problem:

When connecting to a new wireless network protected by a WPA password, no password dialog box is displayed for the user to enter a password.  This makes it extremely hard to log onto new networks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Unable to determine.

How reproducible:

100% of the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. System Menu --> Wireless networks
2. Select Network
3. Pick a WPA protected wifi you haven't connected to before

Actual results:

4. The new connection will hang on "Autentication required"
5. No password dialog will be displayed.

Expected results:

4. A password dialog should display to enter the WPA password.

Additional info:

New F23 install as of 2 weeks ago on brand-new Levono Carbon X1.
